“Online storytelling continues to evolve, with more complex and engaging forms appearing every year. What began as long-form online news articles has branched off in diverse directions, ranging from websites that expand the universe of an upcoming Hollywood movie, to a loose fabric of apps and sites that together reinterpret a classic Victorian novel.
